Cataract Surgery in Oceanside

Leading Cataract Treatment Serving Carlsbad and Encinitas

Since 1992, thousands of patients have been referred to Davies Eye Center for cataract removal surgeries. The practice offers the most advance cataract surgery technology, including Light Adjustable Lenses (LAL) which can improve a patient’s ability to see without glasses post-cataract removal surgery. Cataract surgery has a long history and is proven to be extremely effective and safe. 

Understanding Cataracts and Their Impact on Vision

Anybody who lives long enough will develop cataracts, as they are a natural part of aging, typically appealing when a person is in their 50s or 60s. They occur when the natural focusing eye lens behind the pupil becomes cloudy and dense and prevents light from entering your retina. Left untreated, cataracts can eventually cause blindness and rob you of your independence and diminish your quality of life.  

Experience the Benefits of Modern Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery involves removing the natural clouded lens through no-stitch outpatient surgery. The Davies Eye Center ophthalmic surgeon who performs the procedure will gently fragment/emulsify the cataract before they replace it with a lens implant. With a standard lens implant, you will still need to wear glasses or contacts if you relied on them previously, although you may notice less reliance on them. 

Ensuring the Safety of Your Cataract Procedure

Cataract surgery is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, with a high success rate in improving vision and quality of life for individuals with cataracts. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications that may arise, such as:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Retinal detachment
  • Secondary cataract formation
  • Glaucoma

It is essential for individuals considering cataract surgery to consult with our experienced Oceanside ophthalmologist to assess their specific case and discuss the potential risks and benefits. With advancements in surgical techniques and technology, the safety and success of cataract surgery have significantly improved over the years.

Quick and Effective: The Cataract Surgery Process

Cataract surgery is a common and relatively quick procedure that aims to restore vision affected by cataracts, which are cloudy areas that form in the lens of the eye. On average, cataract surgery takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes per eye. However, the actual duration may vary depending on various factors such as the complexity of the cataract, the surgical technique used, and the individual patient's condition. 

While the surgery itself is swift, patients should plan for additional time for pre-operative preparations, such as dilating the pupil and administering local anesthesia. Additionally, after the surgery, patients are usually kept under observation for a short period to ensure their comfort and safety. Overall, cataract surgery is a relatively brief procedure that offers remarkable vision improvement and can significantly enhance a person's quality of life.

What Are Light Adjustable Lenses?

During cataract surgery, your eye surgeon removes the clouded lens (the cataract) and implants a new lens, and if you opt RxSight’s Light Adjustable Lens (LAL), the implanted lenses will be customized to change and improve your vision after surgery. In fact, patients may even achieve 20/20 visions with the new LAL. The lens produces a different visual focal point, either farther away or up closer. If you’re looking to improve your vision and lessen your dependence on glasses after cataract removal, LAL may be right for you.
